Visit a unique place where you can touch, pet, and be close to the animals at the Luján Zoo. This 37-acre (15-ha) expanse holds all kinds of creatures, from farm animals to elephants, lions, tigers, and pumas, for an experience full of wild nature.

After morning hotel pickup in Buenos Aires, your guide takes you about an hour's drive west to Luján. A tour of the town's religious sites gives you a look at the elegant neo-Gothic basilica, built in honor of the Lady of Luján, Agrentina's patron saint, and a destination where 6 million pilgrims visit each year to pray to the small Virgin Mary figure inside.

Next, take a trip over to the Luján Zoo itself, with free time to explore the 24 exhibits at your leisure. You can step inside enclosures and stroke the mane of a lion, rock a baby tiger in your arms, or hand-feed a bear. Trained zookeepers are on hand to supervise each exhibit as you get close encounters with Asian elephants, dromedary camels, monkeys, sea lions, toucans, macaws, red deer, and more.

If you have little ones in your family, you can head over to kid-friendly areas where they can frolic with farm animals like rabbits, chickens, goats and calves. Kids can take a spin on a pony ride, check out a display of antique tractors, and work on some monkey moves at the playground before you head back to your hotel.
